Subject: One Health Announcements and Discussion Group
Description:The One Health Announcement and Discussion Listserve Group is administered by Sean Cash and the Tufts CTSI One Health Committee (http://www.tuftsctsi.org/research-services/one-health/).
Humans, animals, and the environment are fundamentally linked, yet the strategies to address their health typically remain separate. One Health:
- Is a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to optimizing health for humans, animals, and the environment at the local, national, and global level.
- Incorporates expertise from diverse fields (including human and veterinary medicine, environmental and biological sciences, engineering, public health, political science, urban planning, economics, sociology, epidemiology, and statistical modeling) to study and solve important zoonotic and environmentally-induced diseases, diseases shared by humans and other animals, and challenges at the intersection of humans, animals, and the environment.
The mission of Tufts CTSI’s signature program in One Health is to optimize the health of humans, animals, and the environment through an innovative and integrative, interdisciplinary approach to education, research, and practice.
